Silicone molds have become one of my absolute favorite kitchen gadgets. They are so easy to use and come in so many fun shapes. When it comes to creating 4th of July desserts, I find myself grabbing my star shaped silicone molds time and time again.
I recently read recipe development instructions that stated: “should not include ingredients that are too obscure or aren’t available for the average cook, such as cumin.” Cumin! In a pinch, I’m pretty sure I’ve picked up cumin at 7-11 or the drugstore at midnight (sometimes you need tacos, guys). Living in California with a meyer lemon tree in my yard has probably slanted my perception of what counts as obscure, but surely cumin is common, right?
